Capital Growth

Capital growth in your Kalkan property

Promises of capital grown by those involved in property sales are, at best, an educated guess and a savvy investor knows that there are many contributory factors, some of which are within the buyers control and some of which are not. 

The fundamentals for buying in Kalkan/Antalya are certainly compelling.

1. An excellent climate which brings visitors to Kalkan for 7 months a year, which appeals both to retirees/those wanting to relocate and investors.

2. A stable political democracy and low crime rate.

3. The Turkish government removed the reciprocity restrictions on its property market in 2012.

This means that the property market was effectively opened up to buyers from a further 89 countries, buyers that were previously banned because their governments did not allow Turkish citizens to buy in their respective countries. The Turkish government is committed to increasing the number of foreign buyers of Turkish property and, as well as removing reciprocity restrictions, have increased the length of visa's for property buyers, and established a large number of visa free agreements since 2012 boosting tourism.

8. In October 2013 the system of carrying out Military checks for property purchase was drastically sped up. The process, which previously would take a couple of months or longer can now be completed in one day. This has enabled buyers and the mortgage market to move much more quickly towards completion.
